Autumn 1 Week 3

posted 21 Sep 2017, 12:00 by Bethan Ward   [ updated 21 Sep 2017, 12:04 ]

The new year 1's have all settled into their new class really well. They have been learning lots of interesting facts about toys, and designing their own moving toy. 

Maths: We have been investigating and writing numbers from 0-10. The children have also been counting a variety of objects and matching the objects to numbers. 

Writing: In the children's writing lessons, we have been reading the book 'Paper dolls' by Julia Donaldson. The children have created their own paper dolls, and designed a whole outfit for them. We then took them on an exciting adventure around school and wrote a whole diary entry about our adventure. The children did fantastic sentences with a focus on capital letters and full stops.

Literacy: We have been learning about the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. We wrote our own version of the story and drew a story map to make sure we included all the parts. This week we will be looking at Jim and the Beanstalk and looking how the stories link. We will be using adjectives to make our writing more descriptive and interesting to the reader. 

Maths: We have just finished recapping 2D and 3D shapes. This week the children will be looking days of the week and months of the year.

The children have also been writing the story of Noah's ark and we have made a lovely display of their work and models

Literacy: We have been learning about Christopher Columbus and finding new information using the iPads. We have written our information and have made a class book so we can share our learning with our peers in school. We have also been working hard to form our handwriting correctly and use the Read Write Inc. rhymes to help us remember this; for example 'm' Maisie mountain mountain and 'a' round the apple, down the leaf. 

Maths: We are learning about arrays and using these to solve multiplication and division. 

Our value of the week is 'Respect' and all of the children in Class Leeds have been working hard to show this both in and outside of the classroom.

We have had a great start to the week in Class Leeds. We received a letter from the Wicked Witch. She left a story map to help us tell the story of Hansel and Gretel. Ask us to show you all of the actions. 

In maths we have been learning about adding. We know that we need to put the biggest number first and then count up. We have been using counters to help us. We are going to move on to using pictures and hundred squares to help us add bigger numbers.
